Evening all, my friend is on holiday at the moment so I’m missing my Tuesday night wine. I’m always out on a Tuesday so Keith does his own thing normally …which means I can spend the whole evening tonight in the attic crafting …except I’ve just come up here and it’s sooo bloomin hot so I don’t know how long I’ll last to be honest!
It said on the forecast it’s going to be the hottest day of the year so far tomorrow so I don’t think I’ll get up here much then either. It’s great having my own space but it’s freezing in Winter and like a sauna in Summer so not ideal really. It’s been nice today but not sunny, it’s quite muggy and uncomfortable
Those of you who read my blog regularly will know that I have a habit of rescuing small animals and I found a little bird today. They’re all over the place at the moment building their nests and flying straight across the road into the paths of oncoming cars. I was just about to turn into my street and saw a tiny little brown bird just sat in the middle of the road so I pulled up and ran back to him praying that no cars came the other way before I got there. I scooped him up in my hand and he didn’t move at all poor little thing he was just blinking and he had a tiny droplet of blood just above his beak. I think it was a baby and he’d obviously flown into a car. Keith had just ordered a watch and had it delivered to me at work and it was lucky that I had it in the car, I was trying to hold the bird in one hand and open the box with the other so I could put him in it, I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t had that box. I rang the local vets and she said just leave him in there for a while in the dark as sometimes they’re just a bit stunned. I didn’t know if to take the box back to where I found him in case his Mum was looking for him but there are a few cats around there so I was worried about that and didn’t want him near the road if he was a bit shocked. After about 20 minutes I was going to have a little peek and as soon as I opened the box he just flew out …hooray. I was cheering and clapping like a mad woman I was so pleased that he was ok. I think he’d just needed some time to come round but he wouldn’t have lasted long on the road poor little chap so I did a good deed today!
Onto today's card and it’s time for another challenge at Papertake Weekly and this week our theme is…
~~Hot Hot Hot~~
This could be a colour theme so using warm colours such as reds, hot pinks, oranges, yellows etc. - or maybe you have another interpretation!!
There is a yummy voucher up for grabs from The Ribbon Girl for the lucky winner
As always there is some fab inspiration from the design team so pop over and have a look if you need a few ideas
I used it as a colour theme, they’re not colours I use very often so it made a change…
I used gorgeous K & Co papers and made the flowers with my favourite Crealies die
The Patch and Puss image is from the Lili of the Valley Art Pads, they are fab if you don’t have time to colour
The red lace was a roll end from work, we have this for sale in the Lili of the Valley shop in a few lovely colours
The sentiment is from the scroll sentiments which fit the scroll from the Geisha Girl companion set, both again Lili of the Valley
That’s it from me, enjoy the rest of your Tuesday
